we were going to name our new malamute puppy freki which was the name of one of odin’s mythological wolf companions. but the ravaneous namesake just wasn’t fitting with her cute and cuddly personality. and people would ask “you named her “freaky?” when they first heard her name. and odin said he wasn’t so fond of muninn so we thought for a bit and i said, “how about frida” which is an old norse name meaning “beautiful, beloved”.
we all agreed that it is a perfect name more befitting of our beautiful and beloved puppy.
